You won’t even miss the meat when you dive into this grilled portobello mushroom burger.
Summer is in full swing. Which means it’s time to bust out the grill! We probably use our grill once a week in the summer time. Normally we do the usual hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill, but every once in awhile it’s fun to try something new. To get out of our normal hamburger rut, I decided it would be fun to try a grilled portobello mushroom burger.
I invited my family over to be my taste testers for these burgers. My dad decided that sautéed onions would be a great addition. So we cooked some up as our mushroom caps were marinating. Once our portobello mushroom burgers were done cooking, we built our burgers, each putting on it what we wanted. We had tomatoes, lettuce, sautéed onions, mayo, mustard and we decided a sprinkle of salt and pepper on the tomatoes were a great addition.
- 4 portobello mushroom caps
- 4 hamburger buns
- 4 slices provolone cheese
- 1 large tomato sliced
- 1 head of butter lettuce
- 1 sweet onion sliced
- 1 TBL olive oil (I used garlic infused olive oil)
- 3 TBL Balsamic Vinaigrette
- 2 TBL butter
- Add 1 TBL olive oil and 3 TBL balsamic vinaigrette to a gallon size plastic zip bag.
- Wipe off mushroom caps with a damp cloth and place into the zip bag with the marinade.
- Let marinate for 20-30 minutes and move it the mushroom caps around to make sure they are all coated.
- Heat grill to medium high heat.
- Place 2 TBL butter in a saute pan and thinly slice onion.
- Saute onions in pan over medium high heat.
- Once cooked turn off heat.
- Place mushroom caps on hot grill, starting gill side down.
- Close lid and cook for 4 minutes.
- Flip to other side and cook for 2 minutes.
- Add a slice of cheese to each mushroom cap and cook an additional 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and build your burger.
These burgers were so hearty that we didn’t even miss the meat. Everyone gave the portobello mushroom burger a thumbs up!
